"When one goes through hardships and decides not to surrender...that is strength."
South Carolina achieved much over the past two seasons: A 22 - 4 record, back-to-back bowl victories, and the emergence a Heisman Trophy frontrunner in Jadeveon Clowney.
The Gamecocks have gathered a roster full of endearing characters, overcome mountains of adversity, and ignited a fire in Gamecock Nation. They've turned a rivalry around, showed the value of dedication, and helped us build memories that will last forever.
Now, USC sets out on a new path; one that begins under a hot Columbia sun and ends on a stage in Atlanta. Now, with all of us in Gamecock Nation standing beside them, they show the world that our time has come.
